Dr. Zoltan Grossman: New U.S. Military Bases: Side Effects or Causes of War?
After every U.S. military intervention since 1990, the Pentagon has left behind clusters of new bases in areas where it never before had a foothold. The new string of bases stretch from Kosovo and other Balkan states, to Iraq and other Persian Gulf states, into Afghanistan and other Central Asian states - forming a new U.S. sphere of influence in the strategic 'middle ground' between the EU and East Asia. Dr. Zoltan Grossman has taught Geography and Indigenous Studies for seven years at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, and is a longtime peace and justice organizer from Wisconsin. He is a civilian member of the board of directors for GI Voice / Coffee Strong, a co-founder of FOR's Militarism Watch project, and a frequent contributor to Counterpunch, Z, CommonDreams, and other publications.
